CURIS BEGINS TRADING ON THE TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE

VANCOUVER, May 3 /CNW/ - Curis Resources Ltd. ("Curis") (TSX: CUV) announces that it will begin trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange ("TSX") on Wednesday May 4, 2011 under the symbol CUV.

President & CEO Michael McPhie said: "Curis has reached a number of milestones over the past six months.  The Company went public in November 2010 and concurrently completed a significant financing.  We have now achieved a TSX listing, which we believe will raise the Company's profile with institutional investors."

"Activities at our flagship Florence Copper Project are also progressing well. The formal process to amend and update the existing major operating permits and site zoning requirements for the project continues to advance as originally anticipated.  With a project feasibility study now underway and a comprehensive public outreach program ongoing, we are well positioned to begin the first phase of development of the project at the beginning of 2012," said McPhie.  "The Florence Copper Project represents a unique opportunity to bring to market a low cost, next generation copper producer at the right time and in the right place.  This is an advanced stage copper development project on private land in Central Arizona, USA that was formerly advanced to feasibility level of assessment, full project permits and the completion of a successful pilot test in 1999.   Curis is now advancing the project forward with the goal of achieving commercial production in early 2014."
